Iceberg Slim used to get his nose opened up good and wide when a sweet young thing sauntered past, and that’s what this recipe will do for you. It’s not a high stepping philly but it’s definitely the culinary equivalent.


2 c. Crystal Hot Sauce (while it’s true that Tabasco is the national king of hot sauces, here in Louisiana, Crystal wears the crown, it’s on every single table in every diner in New Orleans, and there’s a reason. It’s the best.

1.5 c. Cream, heavy, whipping

12 oz Butter, cold, cubed

It also makes a fine slather for a wide variety of sandwiches.
